Approve Reject decision within an email

I am looking to permit managers to receive an email to approve a request. Within the email, (PC, mobile device, tablet) I’d like the mgr to be able to approve/reject (with or without comment) from the email and have the response information populate a database.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Very broadly, one option would be:

  • include html buttons for your approve/reject options
  • have those buttons link to an api endpoint with appropriate query string, keys, etc
  • have your api handle whatever business logic (save to db, etc) it needs to

That leaves a lot of detail to be filled in, but the broad strokes are simple.
